In 1647 a pamphlet of ‘True Newes from Neubery’ was printed in London. This pamphlet describes the antics of the ‘Newbury Anabaptists’, and represents just one of the many sensationalist tales of radical religion published during the English Civil War years. This talk will uncover the amusing story of the ‘Newbury Anabaptists’, whilst examining the pamphlet’s place within a wider culture of print and religious change.


Claire McGann is based in the department of English & Creative Writing at Lancaster, where she specialises in seventeenth-century religion and print culture.
